Yes, Timewave has a limited time offer ( see their web site
www.timewave.com )
for the DSP-232.

See excerpt below - non-functional
Excerpt from Timewave's web site about DSP-232 offer

Important Note: Several of the features described in the data sheet either
do not function properly or were never implemented in the production units.
RTTY, AMTOR, 1200 baud PACKET (without MailDrop), and CW modes do WORK.

PACTOR, Satellite, MailDrop, SIAM, 9600 baud packet, WeFAX and Gateway
features DO NOT function properly.

Timewave DOES NOT plan to fix the modes that do not work.

    Full MailDrop Facilities - (non-functional)
    Packet Power (1200 bps ONLY, NOT 9600)
    Packet Satellites (not supported)  9600 bps, 1200 bps PSK PACSATs,
    and 400 bps telemetry.
